Package Details

Overview

From Cologne, we slip our moorings and journey south to Koblenz spending a morning exploring this historic town sitting at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers then continuing to the beautiful old town of Boppard for the evening. Continuing our cruise we navigate the world-famous Rhine Gorge onto Mainz famous for the ‘Gutenberg’ Bibles. Further on we enjoy a guided tour of stunning Heidelberg nestling by the picturesque river Neckar. In Strasbourg, its centre largely unchanged since the 14th century, is a mosaic of winding alleys and lanes lined with quirkily crooked, half-timbered houses. On to Colmar, a perfect, typically quaint medieval Alsatian town. The return journey takes us downstream, stopping in Rudesheim one of the liveliest towns on the river, back through the Rhine Gorge to Cologne to enjoy a guided walking tour of the city with time to explore the stunning cathedral, an excellent finale to this most wonderful cruise.
